Luke has his cast

Luke has his first cast.  He was incredibly nervous before the orthopedist appointment, I think he was worried about them hurting him.  The orthopedist carefully unwrapped the temporary splint, poked around a bit, looked at the x-rays.  Luke broke both bones in his forearm, between the wrist and the growth plate.  One break, in the radius, was all the way through and the other almost all the way through in the ulna.

Luke selected his cast color to be blue.  Once the cast was on, he let out a big sigh of relief.

Then we headed to school where his kindergarten class signed his cast.  After school he had some treats waiting for him from a sweet friend from church and others in the neighborhood...he was spoiled.
